De Blasio urges 'nationalization' of key industries, calls coronavirus outbreak a 'war-like situation'

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is arguing that the best way to tackle the coronavirus outbreak is for the federal government to take over critical private companies in the medical field and have them running 24 hours a day.

The mayor, who made multiple media appearances over the weekend, said that the current situation calls for drastic measures which include nationalizing certain industries.

“This is a case for a nationalization, literally a nationalization, of crucial factories and industries that could produce the medical supplies to prepare this country for what we need,” de Blasio told MSNBC’s Joy Reid on Saturday, calling for “24/7 shifts” during what he called a “war-like situation.”

The following day, de Blasio reiterated this message, telling CNN that “the federal government needs to take over the supply chain right now.” He specified the need for companies that make ventilators, surgical masks, and hand sanitizers to be taken over and made to work around the clock.

New York state already has started producing hand sanitizer in response to shortages and price gouging.

The city itself has also taken drastic steps to deal with the crisis, forcing restaurants to limit themselves to takeout and delivery service, and closing many establishments to prevent the spread of the virus through crowds.

The mayor predicted that coronavirus will continue to be a problem “for at least six months.”

Sunday evening, it was announced that New York City schools will be shutting down until at least April 20, a measure de Blasio previously had resisted, despite facing pressure to do so.

Yeah, right, because the government does such a great job, right! :frown2:

Yeah, typical democrat I guess, but he sounds like a typical communist.

Trump has the right idea, and the private companies are energized. Worst thing that could happen would be nationalization.

Exactly! A typical response from a Socialist, "We have a major problem, let the government take over the industry, because we, the government can do a better job" A lot of countries have gone downhill after the takeover of industry by the government.

"Spain just announced that they have taken over all private healthcare in the country."


Here goes Spain to hell! Well, there is a very large population in Spain that consider themselves Communist.

"The government has bungled the response to Corona virus. Therefore, we must give more power to the government."

I do not believe the government owes me a thing after a natural disaster.
It is called life. Some good, some bad.
If you want the government handout it comes with strings attached usually to your freedoms.
I will pass.
Let the churches and civic organization take care of it.
They do a better job anyway.
Beware of communist masquerading as caring, feeling people.

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed."

I can't find anything in the Constitution that allows the government to take from me the fruits of my labor and then turn around and give those fruits to someone that did NOTHING to earn it.

The groups Kilted mentioned were the social "safety nets." The government has done everything in it's power to make these groups ineffective. Thus they need to have government replace these groups, funding this, at the point of a gun through what amounts to SLAVERY of tax paying Americans.

Woman
They have destroyed the family unit and wed the government.
In this outbreak, these broken families are searching for food and childcare.
The schools baby sat for them and provide two meals a day, at least.
With all the schools closed there ability to hold a job is in distress.

Here the schools are closed but the lunch room remains open.
They even deliver to certain locations at certain times.

Comrade De Blasio needs to find a new job or even a new country.
I would like to recommend countries were I believe Comrade De Blasio would be very happy:
Cuba, Venezuela, North Korea, China, and some countries of the old Soviet Union that are still communist.

DeBlasio has been well known to be a total ass. I was shocked when he was re-elected. But then again these are DumocRats and they can’t help doing stupid things.
